This study directly aims to identify socio -emotional issues that often exist among primary school students, especially in the state of Sabah. The respondents involved were a total of 580 people consisting of teachers in several schools from all over Sabah. Respondents as class teachers are required to assess and identify socio-emotional issues that often occur among students based on the questionnaire provided. After analysis, the results showed that the majority of 59.8% or 347 respondents have chosen the answer "most of the above issues" which shows that the issues identified have involved more than one combination of issues for a class that has been evaluated by respondents. Next, 16.9% of respondents chose the issue of “emotional behavior disorder”, 8.8% of respondents chose the issue of “changes in family (divorce, separation)”, 6.2% chose the answer of “loneliness from peers”, and 4% chose the issue of “bullying” . The issue of "autism" was realized by 1% of respondents, while 0.7% reported that there was an issue of "death among family members" of their students which caused the socio -emotional level of the students involved. The remaining 2.6% respondents were aware that all the issues suggested in the answers had been experienced by their students. It is hoped that this study can be used as a guide to understand more specifically about the conflicts that are often experienced by children who are in the early school life.
